Dinner And A Better Picture....




Earlier, when I took a photo of my sons' new girlfriend, it didn't look as good as she does! She was squinting into the sun, so I offered to post a better photo of her soon... Of course, my son then decides to not shave for a couple of days...
The meal was a marinated center cut pork loin and Au gratin potatoes... With rolls, sauteed mushrooms, and brownies for dessert- we were OK... I use alot of disposable pans when making food that likes to stick to a regular pan ( which makes clean up harder!). Enjoy your week-ends... I'm way behind on paperwork again...

TavoLini said...

TavoLini said...

Real Live Lesbian said...

Happy Friday! What a cute couple!

You can cook for me ANYTIME! Sounds delish. And amen on the throwaway pans.

I thought the other photo was very nice but I hate photographs of myself so I know how she must have felt if she didn't like it. Your son looks good with designer stubble ((wink))

Tanya Kristine said...

mm. brownies.

stubble is ALWAYS a good choice, BD.

Anndi said...

Stubble works for me.

She's quite purty!

I need details about the marinade! I'm starving! These pictures are both salvation and torture...

Man that looks yummy.

Finn- Your sex drive is impressve!
Beth- Yours is a standing invitation, don't act like you're not welcome anytime..
Bina- That hair was one day past scruffy!
Lini- 1st comment- They looked and tasted good! 2nd comment-You behave!
R.L.L.- Those pans work like mad, when you have to cook a gooey dish, and don't want clean-up time to go on forever!
Ake- I'm starting to think you women like a guy that doesn't know how to shave...
Tanya- I always knew you would pick younger dirt balls like my kid, over a cultured gentleman like me...(Dammit..!)

buffalodickdy said...

anndi- Snuck in on me while commenting! Marinade- Olive oil, sea salt, black pepper, rosemary, garlic (crushed!) balsamic vinegar, and fresh lemon juice! Darn tasty and tenderized it a bit, too!

Vodka Mom said...

am I late for dinner?

buffalodickdy said...

VodkaM- Yep, but I can always heat up a plate for you!

Mona said...

Au gratin is my favorite food. i love baked crispy layer of cheese on the top!

Squinting or otherwise, she is priceless! :)

& so are your son & you ! :)

deb said...

see you'd be a good neighbor. I'd just come to eat at your house. au gratin. those look grrreat!

Michelle Ann said...

I am pretty sure that Brad Pitt and George Clooney have made careers from the strategic use of facial stubble....it works

Those potatoes look amazing!

Romi said...

Great idea with the foil throw-away's, add some paper plates and you won't have to do any dishes.

Your son and his girlfriend make a nice looking couple.

Dragonfly Dreaming said...

God, I LOVE mushrooms. And the girlfriend is very, very pretty. Love the hat on the boy! :)

buffalodickdy said...

Mona- Thanks! the Potatoes had a good flavor and consistency..
deb & michelle- I make them from scratch, and they were gone!
romi- Thanks! She is kind of new around here so we shall see..
claudia- My one and only cowboy hat! Resistol, not Stetson...

DoB- Yeah, he's wearing my only cowboy hat- Wear it about once a year.. Big Beaver is the name of the hunt club I belong to..

snowelf said...

oh...

you mean you aren't supposed to throw away the good pans...?
;)

I'm getting caught up now too...isn't it crazy when you take a little R and R break, your life seems to go extra fast right after that?! :D I'm sure we'll both get caught up soon!!

Now that IS such a gorgeous photo :)

What a good idea with the foil trays.... I might use that idea sometimes :) just sometimes though cos I have HUGE oblong french (green) and Spanish (Tericotta) oven thingies which I LOVE..... chicken and garlic lasagne in the oven as I type - sweet potatoe and lentil curry in the slow cooker simmering for tomorrow, 2 broccolli and cheese quiches just out the oven before the lasagne went in and 4 pints of Turkish lentil soup bubbling on the hob.....

Well, what else can one do when the weather is shit........

Have a happy Sunday...

buffalodickdy said...

Snowniece! You much like your adopted Uncle Buf- like to laugh at themselves..Makes it OK for other to laugh WITH you, instead of AT you.. You got potential, kid...
Marmy- Jeez! That's a lot of food, and it all sounds great! I've heard your weather has been rain, followed by more rain..

Mandi said...

Ok, I have lurked around long enough - have often laughed at your comments on doggie bloggie!!!

I just had to ask - I cannot for some unknow reason ever make potatoes like that, I follow the directions and they never turn out - ok whats the secret????

buffalodickdy said...

I guess the tips I'd give would be, don't make the sauce too thin, cover for an hour and cook, uncover and cook for another 1/2 hr., sprinkling extra cheese on at that point...
